However, things aren't as peaceful as they seem - when the Queen calls you, a disgraced General, back to your homeland, you're plunged in a war on many fronts: While a hatemonger threatens to tear apart the Dwarven realm, an enigmatic cult of Dark Elves harvests the souls of people for reasons unknown.

I have never played a spellforce game, but the 3rd one always looked interesting from various videos I have seen, might buy when a complete edition launches on steam.

this one will be standalone, i believe ... don't think they'll release anything else for the base game

I'm going to keep my eye out on the steam sales this next week then.
Winter Seal begins this week, i believe :) and they might want to put the base game on a nice sale to get people to buy the expandalone :)

fingers crossed!

I've put some time into #2, so I'm intrigued, but sometimes I feel like I'm gaming the systems and less trying to use those mechanics in a strategy.

pellForce 3: Soul Harvest will be available May 28th! Oh no! You've come for our moonsilver, haven't you? We beg you: have some pity! How could our feeble walls possibly withstand your battering rams? You'd crush them before we could even think about raining fire down on your heads, wouldn't you? Not too mention our poor sentries and their mounted crossbows, of course – what are they compared to your mighty cavalry? Ooh, let's be honest: when did a berserker's axe ever stand a chance against a human sword? No, kind lady, we're just a bunch of drunken dwarves, we're not a challenge. So if you still want our moonsilver, come and get it.
